Some days I wake up with a song in my heart. Today’s song is “It’s a great day to be alive”. This song has always made me smile and I have lots to smile about today.
-Treatment number 5 has begun! While this week was a little crazy, I am glad to be here today. I have made it to the 5th treatment, something that seemed so far away in August. The fact that I am here today means that I am almost done with this part of the journey!
-Tomorrow brings two of my sisters and one of my nephews! Yay! Although it isn’t a carefree weekend of festivities, it is time with my family to laugh and smile. That, in itself, makes me feel better.
-I’m going to beat this. My best friend messaged me yesterday and told me that this treatment is going to be one of the hardest because it is going to be the one that takes over the cancer and kills it off, making progress on this tumor & lymph nodes. Ya know what? I believe her. And with all of the people supporting me this weekend, even if it is the hardest one, I know I’ll get through it.
-I dropped off the Love Jars today!!! It took a little longer than I anticipated but I was so excited to drop them off this morning. Everyone loves them and within 30 minutes, someone had already taken one. Yay! I hope it brightens someone’s day the way it brightens mine. I’ll post pictures later!
-At the end of this year, I’ll be able to ring the bell to indicate that I am done with this portion of treatment! Just typing those words brings tears to my eyes! How awesome is that?!
-Did I mention I won’t be sick on Christmas? My 6th treatment will be the Monday after, which means I should feel good that day!
So today, my friends, is indeed a great day to be alive! Enjoy this beautiful day and hug someone you love for me today.
